SOURCE: Woods In-wall Timer Heavy Duty, Model #59018 -- I

Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

SOURCE: i just bought a woods timer model rand 1400 (

Just got Woods Model RAND1400 (49750) "Indoor Random Timer" from Menards. It seems to be preset to a "random" pattern of on/off times throughout a week. The instructions (essentially) say to set the day/time by turning the front dial (segmented into 7 days, day/night for each day, and a couple hour marks for each day/night). The instructions for my timer list on/off times that are different for each day, and with different durations. It seems to generally turn on/off during dark hours. A manual override switch turns power "on." Plug the timer into the wall, plug the lamp into the timer. That's it. Not very precise, but probably shouldn't be either. I got three of these things, planning to set each to a different day so they don't all turn on/off near the same time as each other. Phone number to call for further assistance: 1-800-561-4321 (M-F, 8:30am-5:00pm, Eastern time).
Max load: 15A, 1875W Resistive, or 8A, 1000W Tungsten. 125 VAC/60Hz,
3/4 HP, 8A Ballast (fluorescent)
Cat: # TM261A
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: I bought timer model #402A.

1250 watt tungsten: Tungsten is the tungsten filament in light bulb.
So 402A timer is rated for light bulb only and not dehumidifier motor load.
1800 watt dehumidifier will burn 402A timer, and could start a fire.
I suggest Intermatic heavy-duty appliance timer HB113C:

We have an older Malibu 300w low voltage transformer that has a non-working timer and want to install a photo eye on it. The instructions for the photo eye as well as recent IFU from Malibu show 3...

How about this solution:
Don't use the photo eye from Intermatic, since unsure if older timers might not be made for that feature.
Instead, plug power pack into photo-eye timer.
Or plug power pack into ordinary wall timer:

Call Intermatic and they might have solution for photo eye.

I installed a digital timer GE 15086. Does it work with fluorescent lights?

15086 manual says 15A Tungsten.
Tungsten is incandescent.
manuals usually say CFL or fluorescent if they are made for those loads.

Honeywell (500 watt/40 watt minimum) Aube T-1032 handles fluorescent and halogen

Woods 59028 works with CFL

So far, I bought 5 Woods 59377 Indor Digital 7-day timer and each of them stopped working. The timer is connected to the hologean 90 Watt lightbulbs. What's causing the timer to stop working?

Check following link to identify timer and download manual:

1) Manual shows 59377 timer is for Tungsten (incandescent)
2) GE faq page shows halogen and incandescent together, so the timer may be rated for halogen. It is unclear.
3) Buy cheap circuit analyzer at home center and check circuit. Whenever electronic timers fail, circuit is suspect. The light fixture may be causing interference. Try timer on different circuit. Try timer on different load.
4) Use mechanical timer instead of digital timer:
